DURHAM, NC (AP) — Police are searching for suspects who vandalized the famous Duke Gardens, breaking dozens of pots and damaging a sculpture.

Authorities in Durham say the vandalism occurred sometime over the weekend, with about 40 terra cotta pots imported from Italy being damaged. A sculpture in one of the park’s fountains was also damaged along with a sign.

The Sarah P. Duke Gardens, which dates to the 1930’s, is one of the university’s most famous features. The 55-acre attraction draws more than 300,000 visitors a year.

William LeFevre says the extent of the damage is still being tallied, but that officials expect it to cost thousands of dollars.
